Today was another tough day on the local sports radio scene.

Scott Rintoul has been let go by Sportsnet 650. The longtime local broadcaster confirmed the news in a message posted to Twitter this morning. Rintoul had been hosting a four-hour-long show with Karen Surman, from 9 am to 1 pm PT, that aired in Vancouver and Sportsnet 960 in Calgary.

“Our show is part of the changes that Sportsnet has decided to make today,” Rintoul said, before thanking the people he worked with across the country. The always-classy broadcaster then thanked the audience, including the haters.

“I know there are exciting opportunities that lie ahead, and I’m eager to embrace them,” he added. “I look forward to sharing them with you ASAP.”

  1. I heard Jim rome himself mention about rumours that some affiliates here would come back including this one. That won’t mean I will listen on sportsnet 650. I will always listen on kpug from bellingham always. That show was on I found out yesterday. Coincidence that the same frequency that the friend of the former producer of that u.s. show was on when it was music would have said show on same frequency as sports!!!!

  2. Not meant to disrespect “The Moj”, but getting Scotty back to calling Lion’s games would be great, with the Moj doing more of the on-field talking with players work.
    I know we won’t get the restaurant low down, but I think it would be a win for everyone.
